Hank Williams Style Strumming and Lead

Lesson 18 – Rhythm Fill Riffs and Lead Guitar Course
Lesson ID: A0155

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn three country strumming patterns that work great for classic country. Then we’ll practice the country strumming patterns over a couple of chord progressions in the style of the old classic song “Your Cheatin’ Heart” by Hank Williams. After we work through the rhythm guitar parts, we’ll switch gears and I’ll teach you a simple classic country guitar solo that you can play along with “Your Cheatin’ Heart”. Overall this is a great lesson for classic country strumming and lead guitar.

Greetings from Canada! Really excellent lesson Devin. It’s hard to find good guitar instruction like this in my neck of the woods and your videos are top notch.

Hi Devin,
I am still really enjoying your lessons and I can tell you they are the best I have found online for this style playing bluegrass and the red dirt kind of country. Sincere thanks. Keep up the great work. I would love to see some more Texas country style lessons if you get a chance. Thanks!!

Hey Devin, New to your web site, and enjoying the lesson;s. I was born 2 months before Hank William’s died and grew up listening to Hank,Jimmie R, Web pierce and the rest of the country singer’s in the 50’s. I’m glad I found CGO.

I had a problem with this video. At 10:05 The video went blank and told me to log in to go any farther. I was logged in, I realize I’m on the 1 month trial but I thought I could at least follow the lesson. Is there a problem with the video or am I missing something
